Confucius's Birthday

This is a time to commemorate the birth of the teacher RYC Remanufactured AC Compressor and A/C Clutch Kit EG169K1, perhaps the most influential man in China's history.

The festival opens with a ceremony accompanied by ancient music and dance and includes exhibitions and lectures on the life and teachings of Confucius. More... Discuss
